Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

Training is to provide citizens with basic skills that they will need to respond to their community’s immediate needs in the aftermath of an extreme disaster, when emergency services are not immediately available. By working together, CERT’s can assist in saving lives and protecting property using the basic techniques in this course. This training is free of charge and open to anyone living, working or has a vested interest in the City of Fort Worth.
